Platform games – 2.5D ones in particular – seem to be a lot more common on the Switch than on any other contemporary console. Perhaps the popularity of first party 2.5D games such as Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and Kirby Star Allies, along with the younger age demographic that tends to play on Nintendo’s console, is a factor here. In any case, it’s not necessarily a bad thing; just an observation.
Stitchy in Tooki Trouble is, as you may have guessed, a 2.5D platformer. For an indie title, it’s incredibly polished from a visual standpoint – the animation is lovely and the character design is full of charm. Main character Stitchy is a joy to control as he double jumps and bounces off the heads of enemies in his quest to recover all the stolen corn from the wooden bad guys (the ‘Tooki’ of the title).
Though fairly easy to breeze through for older players, obtaining the maximum three stars on each level does provide a decent level of challenge. It’s not the most original title in the world to say the least (it’s woefully short of anything resembling a new or interesting gameplay mechanic to set it apart from other games of the same ilk) and level design is a little too straightforward and linear, but it’s difficult to be too harsh on the game when it provides quite a bit of old-school platforming fun at a reasonably cheap price.
Younger players are definitely going to get the most out of Stitchy in Tooki Trouble, but more experienced gamers are also likely to find that there’s quite a bit of charm in Stitchy’s colourful, beautifully animated antics, despite the lack of originality.
Many thanks to Forever Entertainment for providing a code for Stitchy in Tooki Trouble for review purposes.
